I found an interesting article about how using pacifiers may supposedly stunt boy's emotional growth. I'm not completely sure if I buy into all this, but it was interesting to read. Do you plan on using a pacifier for your child and if so when is it time to take the pacifier away? I watched an episode of Toddlers in Tiara's and there was an older child with a pacifier and she kept yelling out for it all the time. Personally I feel like I would not want my child using it after 1 year. I guess I just feel like that's long enough and by then they shouldn't need it, but I've also never had to wean a baby off of the pacifier since I'm a first time mom. What do you think about how long is too long for a pacifier? Any BTDT moms, when did you take away the pacifiers with your child or did they just stop needing it on their own?
